       (a) Identify the minimum and maximum number of secure community transition facility beds in addition to the facility established under subsection (1) of this section that may be necessary for the period of May 2004 through May 2007 and provide notice of these numbers to all counties by August 31, 2001; and

       (b) ((In consultation with the joint select committee established in section 225, chapter 12, Laws of 2001 2nd sp. sess.,)) Develop and publish policy guidelines for the siting and operation of secure community transition facilities ((by October 1, 2001; and

The report shall include a projection of the anticipated number of secure community transition facility beds that will become operational between May 2004 and May 2007. If it appears that an insufficient number of beds will be operational, the department's report shall recommend a progression of methods to facilitate siting in counties and cities including, if necessary, preemption of local land use planning process and other laws)).

       (7)(a) The total number of secure community transition facility beds that may be required to be sited in a county between June 26, 2001, and June 30, 2008, may be no greater than the total number of persons civilly committed from that county, or detained at the special commitment center under a pending civil commitment petition from that county where a finding of probable cause had been made on April 1, 2001. The total number of secure community transition facility beds required to be sited in each county between July 1, 2008, and June 30, 2015, may be no greater than the total number of persons civilly committed from that county or detained at the special commitment center under a pending civil commitment petition from that county where a finding of probable cause had been made as of July 1, 2008.

MOTIONS

       Senator Roach moved that the following striking amendment by Senators Roach and Kastama be adopted, under suspension of the rules:

       Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:

       "NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. A new section is added to chapter 39.10 RCW to read as follows:

       (1) Public bodies may use a job order contract for public works projects when:

       (a) A public body has made a determination that the use of job order contracts will benefit the public by providing an effective means of reducing the total lead-time and cost for public works projects or repair required at public facilities through the use of unit price books and work orders by eliminating time-consuming, costly aspects of the traditional public works process, which require separate contracting actions for each small project;

       (b) The work order to be issued for a particular project does not exceed two hundred thousand dollars;

       (c) Less than twenty percent of the dollar value of the work order consists of items of work not contained in the unit price book; and

       (d) At least eighty percent of the job order contract must be subcontracted to entities other than the job order contractor.

       (2) Public bodies shall award job order contracts through a competitive process utilizing public requests for proposals. Public bodies shall make an effort to solicit proposals from a certified minority or certified woman-owned contractor to the extent permitted by the Washington state civil rights act, RCW 49.60.400. The public body shall publish, at least once in a legal newspaper of general circulation published in or as near as possible to that part of the county in which the public works will be done, a request for proposals for job order contracts and the availability and location of the request for proposal documents. The public body shall ensure that the request for proposal documents at a minimum includes:

       (a) A detailed description of the scope of the job order contract including performance, technical requirements and specifications, functional and operational elements, minimum and maximum work order amounts, duration of the contract, and options to extend the job order contract;

       (b) The reasons for using job order contracts;

       (c) A description of the qualifications required of the proposer;

       (d) The identity of the specific unit price book to be used;

       (e) The minimum contracted amount committed to the selected job order contractor;

       (f) A description of the process the public body will use to evaluate qualifications and proposals, including evaluation factors and the relative weight of factors. The public body shall ensure that evaluation factors include, but are not limited to, proposal price and the ability of the proposer to perform the job order contract. In evaluating the ability of the proposer to perform the job order contract, the public body may consider: The ability of the professional personnel who will work on the job order contract; past performance on similar contracts; ability to meet time and budget requirements; ability to provide a performance and payment bond for the job order contract; recent, current, and projected work loads of the proposer; location; and the concept of the proposal;

       (g) The form of the contract to be awarded;

       (h) The method for pricing renewals of or extensions to the job order contract;

       (i) A notice that the proposals are subject to the provisions of RCW 39.10.100; and

       (j) Other information relevant to the project.

       (3) A public body shall establish a committee to evaluate the proposals. After the committee has selected the most qualified finalists, the finalists shall submit final proposals, including sealed bids based upon the identified unit price book. Such bids may be in the form of coefficient markups from listed price book costs. The public body shall award the contract to the firm submitting the highest scored final proposal using the evaluation factors and the relative weight of factors published in the public request for proposals.

       (4) The public body shall provide a protest period of at least ten business days following the day of the announcement of the apparent successful proposal to allow a protester to file a detailed statement of the grounds of the protest. The public body shall promptly make a determination on the merits of the protest and provide to all proposers a written decision of denial or acceptance of the protest. The public body shall not execute the contract until two business days following the public body's decision on the protest.

       (5) The public body shall issue no work orders until it has approved, in consultation with the office of minority and women's business enterprises or the equivalent local agency, a plan prepared by the job order contractor that equitably spreads certified women and minority business enterprise subcontracting opportunities, to the extent permitted by the Washington state civil rights act, RCW 49.60.400, among the various subcontract disciplines.

       (6) Job order contracts may be executed for an initial contract term of not to exceed two years, with the option of extending or renewing the job order contract for one year. All extensions or renewals must be priced as provided in the request for proposals. The extension or renewal must be mutually agreed to by the public body and the job order contractor.

       (7) The maximum total dollar amount that may be awarded under a job order contract shall not exceed three million dollars in the first year of the job order contract, five million dollars over the first two years of the job order contract, and, if extended or renewed, eight million dollars over the three years of the job order contract.

       (8) For each job order contract, public bodies shall not issue more than two work orders equal to or greater than one hundred fifty thousand dollars in a twelve-month contract performance period.

       (9) All work orders issued for the same project shall be treated as a single work order for purposes of the one hundred fifty thousand dollar limit on work orders in subsection (8) of this section and the two hundred thousand dollar limit on work orders in subsection (1)(b) of this section.

       (10) Any new permanent, enclosed building space constructed under a work order shall not exceed two thousand gross square feet.

       (11) Each public body may have no more than two job order contracts in effect at any one time.

       (12) For purposes of chapters 39.08, 39.12, 39.76, and 60.28 RCW, each work order issued shall be treated as a separate contract. The alternate filing provisions of RCW 39.12.040(2) shall apply to each work order that otherwise meets the eligibility requirements of RCW 39.12.040(2).

       (13) The requirements of RCW 39.30.060 do not apply to requests for proposals for job order contracts.

       (14) Job order contractors shall pay prevailing wages for all work that would otherwise be subject to the requirements of chapter 39.12 RCW. Prevailing wages for all work performed pursuant to each work order must be the rates in effect at the time the individual work order is issued.

       (15) If, in the initial contract term, the public body, at no fault of the job order contractor, fails to issue the minimum amount of work orders stated in the public request for proposals, the public body shall pay the contractor an amount equal to the difference between the minimum work order amount and the actual total of the work orders issued multiplied by an appropriate percentage for overhead and profit contained in the general conditions for Washington state facility construction. This will be the contractor's sole remedy.

       (16) All job order contracts awarded under this section must be executed before July 1, 2007, however the job order contract may be extended or renewed as provided for in this section.

       (17) For purposes of this section, "public body" includes any school district.

       (1) Every invitation to bid on a prime contract that is expected to cost one million dollars or more for the construction, alteration, or repair of any public building or public work of the state or a state agency or municipality as defined under RCW 39.04.010 or an institution of higher education as defined under RCW 28B.10.016 shall require each prime contract bidder to submit as part of the bid, or within one hour after the published bid submittal time, the names of the subcontractors with whom the bidder, if awarded the contract, will subcontract for performance of the work of: HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning); plumbing as described in chapter 18.106 RCW; and electrical as described in chapter 19.28 RCW, or to name itself for the work. The prime contract bidder shall not list more than one subcontractor for each category of work identified, unless subcontractors vary with bid alternates, in which case the prime contract bidder must indicate which subcontractor will be used for which alternate. Failure of the prime contract bidder to submit as part of the bid the names of such subcontractors or to name itself to perform such work or the naming of two or more subcontractors to perform the same work shall render the prime contract bidder's bid nonresponsive and, therefore, void.

       (2) Substitution of a listed subcontractor in furtherance of bid shopping or bid peddling before or after the award of the prime contract is prohibited and the originally listed subcontractor is entitled to recover monetary damages from the prime contract bidder who executed a contract with the public entity and the substituted subcontractor but not from the public entity inviting the bid. It is the original subcontractor's burden to prove by a preponderance of the evidence that bid shopping or bid peddling occurred. Substitution of a listed subcontractor may be made by the prime contractor for the following reasons:

       (a) Refusal of the listed subcontractor to sign a contract with the prime contractor;

       (b) Bankruptcy or insolvency of the listed subcontractor;

       (c) Inability of the listed subcontractor to perform the requirements of the proposed contract or the project;

       (d) Inability of the listed subcontractor to obtain the necessary license, bonding, insurance, or other statutory requirements to perform the work detailed in the contract; or

       (e) The listed subcontractor is barred from participating in the project as a result of a court order or summary judgment.

       (3) The requirement of this section to name the prime contract bidder's proposed HVAC, plumbing, and electrical subcontractors applies only to proposed HVAC, plumbing, and electrical subcontractors who will contract directly with the prime contract bidder submitting the bid to the public entity.

       (4) This section does not apply to job order contract requests for proposals under section 1 of this act.

       NEW SECTION. Sec. 6. A new section is added to chapter 39.12 RCW to read as follows:

       Job order contracts under section 1 of this act must pay prevailing wages for all work that would otherwise be subject to the requirements of this chapter. Prevailing wages for all work performed pursuant to each work order must be the rates in effect at the time the individual work order is issued.

       Sec. 7. RCW 60.28.011 and 2000 c 185 s 1 are each amended to read as follows:

       (1) Public improvement contracts shall provide, and public bodies shall reserve, a contract retainage not to exceed five percent of the moneys earned by the contractor as a trust fund for the protection and payment of: (a) The claims of any person arising under the contract; and (b) the state with respect to taxes imposed pursuant to Title 82 RCW which may be due from such contractor.

       (2) Every person performing labor or furnishing supplies toward the completion of a public improvement contract shall have a lien upon moneys reserved by a public body under the provisions of a public improvement contract. However, the notice of the lien of the claimant shall be given within forty-five days of completion of the contract work, and in the manner provided in RCW 39.08.030.

       (3) The contractor at any time may request the contract retainage be reduced to one hundred percent of the value of the work remaining on the project.

       (a) After completion of all contract work other than landscaping, the contractor may request that the public body release and pay in full the amounts retained during the performance of the contract, and sixty days thereafter the public body must release and pay in full the amounts retained (other than continuing retention of five percent of the moneys earned for landscaping) subject to the provisions of chapters 39.12 and 60.28 RCW.

       (b) Sixty days after completion of all contract work the public body must release and pay in full the amounts retained during the performance of the contract subject to the provisions of chapters 39.12 and 60.28 RCW.

       (4) The moneys reserved by a public body under the provisions of a public improvement contract, at the option of the contractor, shall be:

       (a) Retained in a fund by the public body;

       (b) Deposited by the public body in an interest bearing account in a bank, mutual savings bank, or savings and loan association. Interest on moneys reserved by a public body under the provision of a public improvement contract shall be paid to the contractor;

       (c) Placed in escrow with a bank or trust company by the public body. When the moneys reserved are placed in escrow, the public body shall issue a check representing the sum of the moneys reserved payable to the bank or trust company and the contractor jointly. This check shall be converted into bonds and securities chosen by the contractor and approved by the public body and the bonds and securities shall be held in escrow. Interest on the bonds and securities shall be paid to the contractor as the interest accrues.

       (5) The contractor or subcontractor may withhold payment of not more than five percent from the moneys earned by any subcontractor or sub-subcontractor or supplier contracted with by the contractor to provide labor, materials, or equipment to the public project. Whenever the contractor or subcontractor reserves funds earned by a subcontractor or sub-subcontractor or supplier, the contractor or subcontractor shall pay interest to the subcontractor or sub- subcontractor or supplier at a rate equal to that received by the contractor or subcontractor from reserved funds.

       (6) A contractor may submit a bond for all or any portion of the contract retainage in a form acceptable to the public body and from a bonding company meeting standards established by the public body. The public body shall accept a bond meeting these requirements unless the public body can demonstrate good cause for refusing to accept it. This bond and any proceeds therefrom are subject to all claims and liens and in the same manner and priority as set forth for retained percentages in this chapter. The public body shall release the bonded portion of the retained funds to the contractor within thirty days of accepting the bond from the contractor. Whenever a public body accepts a bond in lieu of retained funds from a contractor, the contractor shall accept like bonds from any subcontractors or suppliers from which the contractor has retained funds. The contractor shall then release the funds retained from the subcontractor or supplier to the subcontractor or supplier within thirty days of accepting the bond from the subcontractor or supplier.

       (7) If the public body administering a contract, after a substantial portion of the work has been completed, finds that an unreasonable delay will occur in the completion of the remaining portion of the contract for any reason not the result of a breach thereof, it may, if the contractor agrees, delete from the contract the remaining work and accept as final the improvement at the stage of completion then attained and make payment in proportion to the amount of the work accomplished and in this case any amounts retained and accumulated under this section shall be held for a period of sixty days following the completion. In the event that the work is terminated before final completion as provided in this section, the public body may thereafter enter into a new contract with the same contractor to perform the remaining work or improvement for an amount equal to or less than the cost of the remaining work as was provided for in the original contract without advertisement or bid. The provisions of this chapter are exclusive and shall supersede all provisions and regulations in conflict herewith.

       (8) Whenever the department of transportation has contracted for the construction of two or more ferry vessels, sixty days after completion of all contract work on each ferry vessel, the department must release and pay in full the amounts retained in connection with the construction of the vessel subject to the provisions of RCW 60.28.020 and chapter 39.12 RCW. However, the department of transportation may at its discretion condition the release of funds retained in connection with the completed ferry upon the contractor delivering a good and sufficient bond with two or more sureties, or with a surety company, in the amount of the retained funds to be released to the contractor, conditioned that no taxes shall be certified or claims filed for work on the ferry after a period of sixty days following completion of the ferry; and if taxes are certified or claims filed, recovery may be had on the bond by the department of revenue and the materialmen and laborers filing claims.

       (9) Except as provided in subsection (1) of this section, reservation by a public body for any purpose from the moneys earned by a contractor by fulfilling its responsibilities under public improvement contracts is prohibited.

       (10) Contracts on projects funded in whole or in part by farmers home administration and subject to farmers home administration regulations are not subject to subsections (1) through (9) of this section.

       (11) This subsection applies only to a public body that has contracted for the construction of a facility using the general contractor/construction manager procedure, as defined under RCW ((39.10.060)) 39.10.061. If the work performed by a subcontractor on the project has been completed within the first half of the time provided in the general contractor/construction manager contract for completing the work, the public body may accept the completion of the subcontract. The public body must give public notice of this acceptance. After a forty-five day period for giving notice of liens, and compliance with the retainage release procedures in RCW 60.28.021, the public body may release that portion of the retained funds associated with the subcontract. Claims against the retained funds after the forty-five day period are not valid.

       (12) Unless the context clearly requires otherwise, the definitions in this subsection apply throughout this section.

       (a) "Contract retainage" means an amount reserved by a public body from the moneys earned by a person under a public improvement contract.

       (b) "Person" means a person or persons, mechanic, subcontractor, or materialperson who performs labor or provides materials for a public improvement contract, and any other person who supplies the person with provisions or supplies for the carrying on of a public improvement contract.

       (c) "Public body" means the state, or a county, city, town, district, board, or other public body.

       (d) "Public improvement contract" means a contract for public improvements or work, other than for professional services, or a work order as defined in RCW 39.10.020.

       Unless the context clearly requires otherwise, the definitions in this section apply throughout this chapter.

       (1) "Alternative public works contracting procedure" means the design-build and the general contractor/construction manager contracting procedures authorized in RCW 39.10.051 and 39.10.061, respectively.

The authority granted to port districts in this section is in addition to and does not affect existing contracting authority under RCW 53.08.120 and 53.08.130. For the purposes of this section, "design-build procedure" means a contract between a public body and another party in which the party agrees to both design and build the facility, portion of the facility, or other item specified in the contract.

       (2) Public bodies authorized under this section may utilize the design-build procedure for public works projects valued over ten million dollars where:

       (a) The construction activities or technologies to be used are highly specialized and a design-build approach is critical in developing the construction methodology or implementing the proposed technology; or

       (b) The project design is repetitive in nature and is an incidental part of the installation or construction; or

       (c) Regular interaction with and feedback from facilities users and operators during design is not critical to an effective facility design.

       (3) Public bodies authorized under this section may also use the design-build procedure for the following projects that meet the criteria in subsection (2)(b) and (c) of this section:

       (a) A detailed description of the project including programmatic, performance, and technical requirements and specifications, functional and operational elements, minimum and maximum net and gross areas of any building, and, at the discretion of the public body, preliminary engineering and architectural drawings;

       (b) The reasons for using the design-build procedure;

       (c) A description of the qualifications to be required of the proposer including, but not limited to, submission of the proposer's accident prevention program;

       (f) The amount to be paid to finalists submitting best and final proposals who are not awarded a design-build contract; and

       (g) Other information relevant to the project.

Based on its evaluation, the public body shall select not fewer than three nor more than five finalists to submit best and final proposals. The public body may, in its sole discretion, reject all proposals. Design-build contracts shall be awarded using the procedures in (a) or (b) of this subsection.

       (a) Best and final proposals shall be evaluated and scored based on the factors, weighting, and process identified in the initial request for proposals. The public body may score the proposals using a system that measures the quality and technical merits of the proposal on a unit price basis. Final proposals may not be considered if the proposal cost is greater than the maximum allowable construction cost identified in the initial request for proposals. The public body shall initiate negotiations with the firm submitting the highest scored best and final proposal. If the public body is unable to execute a contract with the firm submitting the highest scored best and final proposal, negotiations with that firm may be suspended or terminated and the public body may proceed to negotiate with the next highest scored firm. Public bodies shall continue in accordance with this procedure until a contract agreement is reached or the selection process is terminated.

       (b) If the public body determines that all finalists are capable of producing plans and specifications that adequately meet project requirements, the public body may award the contract to the firm that submits the responsive best and final proposal with the lowest price.

       (6) The firm awarded the contract shall provide a performance and payment bond for the contracted amount. The public body shall provide appropriate honorarium payments to finalists submitting best and final proposals who are not awarded a design-build contract. Honorarium payments shall be sufficient to generate meaningful competition among potential proposers on design-build projects.

       Sec. 5. RCW 39.10.061 and 2002 c 46 s 2 are each amended to read as follows:

       (1) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, and after complying with RCW 39.10.030, a public body may utilize the general contractor/construction manager procedure of public works contracting for public works projects authorized under subsection (2) of this section. For the purposes of this section, "general contractor/construction manager" means a firm with which a public body has selected and negotiated a maximum allowable construction cost to be guaranteed by the firm, after competitive selection through formal advertisement and competitive bids, to provide services during the design phase that may include life-cycle cost design considerations, value engineering, scheduling, cost estimating, constructability, alternative construction options for cost savings, and sequencing of work, and to act as the construction manager and general contractor during the construction phase.

       (2) Except those school districts proposing projects that are considered and approved by the school district project review board and those public hospital districts proposing projects that are considered and approved by the public hospital district project review board, public bodies authorized under this section may utilize the general contractor/construction manager procedure for public works projects valued over ten million dollars where:

       (a) Implementation of the project involves complex scheduling requirements; or

       (b) The project involves construction at an existing facility which must continue to operate during construction; or

       (c) The involvement of the general contractor/construction manager during the design stage is critical to the success of the project.

       (3) Public bodies should select general contractor/construction managers early in the life of public works projects, and in most situations no later than the completion of schematic design.

       (4) Contracts for the services of a general contractor/construction manager under this section shall be awarded through a competitive process requiring the public solicitation of proposals for general contractor/construction manager services. The public solicitation of proposals shall include: A description of the project, including programmatic, performance, and technical requirements and specifications when available; the reasons for using the general contractor/construction manager procedure; a description of the qualifications to be required of the proposer, including submission of the proposer's accident prevention program; a description of the process the public body will use to evaluate qualifications and proposals, including evaluation factors and the relative weight of factors; the form of the contract to be awarded; the estimated maximum allowable construction cost; and the bid instructions to be used by the general contractor/construction manager finalists. Evaluation factors shall include, but not be limited to: Ability of professional personnel, past performance in negotiated and complex projects, and ability to meet time and budget requirements; the scope of work the general contractor/construction manager proposes to self-perform and its ability to perform it; location; recent, current, and projected work loads of the firm; and the concept of their proposal. A public body shall establish a committee to evaluate the proposals. After the committee has selected the most qualified finalists, these finalists shall submit final proposals, including sealed bids for the percent fee, which is the percentage amount to be earned by the general contractor/construction manager as overhead and profit, on the estimated maximum allowable construction cost and the fixed amount for the detailed specified general conditions work. The public body shall select the firm submitting the highest scored final proposal using the evaluation factors and the relative weight of factors published in the public solicitation of proposals.

       (5) The maximum allowable construction cost may be negotiated between the public body and the selected firm after the scope of the project is adequately determined to establish a guaranteed contract cost for which the general contractor/construction manager will provide a performance and payment bond. The guaranteed contract cost includes the fixed amount for the detailed specified general conditions work, the negotiated maximum allowable construction cost, the percent fee on the negotiated maximum allowable construction cost, and sales tax. If the public body is unable to negotiate a satisfactory maximum allowable construction cost with the firm selected that the public body determines to be fair, reasonable, and within the available funds, negotiations with that firm shall be formally terminated and the public body shall negotiate with the next highest scored firm and continue until an agreement is reached or the process is terminated. If the maximum allowable construction cost varies more than fifteen percent from the bid estimated maximum allowable construction cost due to requested and approved changes in the scope by the public body, the percent fee shall be renegotiated.

       (6) All subcontract work shall be competitively bid with public bid openings. When critical to the successful completion of a subcontractor bid package and after publication of notice of intent to determine bidder eligibility in a legal newspaper of general circulation published in or as near as possible to that part of the county in which the public work will be done at least twenty days before requesting qualifications from interested subcontract bidders, the owner and general contractor/construction manager may determine subcontractor bidding eligibility using the following evaluation criteria:

       (a) Adequate financial resources or the ability to secure such resources;

       (b) History of successful completion of a contract of similar type and scope;

       (c) Project management and project supervision personnel with experience on similar projects and the availability of such personnel for the project;

       (d) Current and projected workload and the impact the project will have on the subcontractor's current and projected workload;

       (e) Ability to accurately estimate the subcontract bid package scope of work;

       (f) Ability to meet subcontract bid package shop drawing and other coordination procedures;

       (g) Eligibility to receive an award under applicable laws and regulations; and

       (h) Ability to meet subcontract bid package scheduling requirements.

       The owner and general contractor/construction manager shall weigh the evaluation criteria and determine a minimum acceptable score to be considered an eligible subcontract bidder.

       After publication of notice of intent to determine bidder eligibility, subcontractors requesting eligibility shall be provided the evaluation criteria and weighting to be used by the owner and general contractor/construction manager to determine eligible subcontract bidders. After the owner and general contractor/construction manager determine eligible subcontract bidders, subcontractors requesting eligibility shall be provided the results and scoring of the subcontract bidder eligibility determination.

       Subcontract bid packages shall be awarded to the responsible bidder submitting the low responsive bid. The requirements of RCW 39.30.060 apply to each subcontract bid package. All subcontractors who bid work over three hundred thousand dollars shall post a bid bond and all subcontractors who are awarded a contract over three hundred thousand dollars shall provide a performance and payment bond for their contract amount. All other subcontractors shall provide a performance and payment bond if required by the general contractor/construction manager. If a general contractor/construction manager receives a written protest from a subcontractor bidder, the general contractor/construction manager shall not execute a contract for the subcontract bid package with anyone other than the protesting bidder without first providing at least two full business days' written notice of the general contractor/construction manager's intent to execute a contract for the subcontract bid package; provided that the protesting bidder submits notice in writing of its protest no later than two full business days following bid opening. Intermediate Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays are not counted. A low bidder who claims error and fails to enter into a contract is prohibited from bidding on the same project if a second or subsequent call for bids is made for the project. Except as provided for under subsection (7) of this section, bidding on subcontract work by the general contractor/construction manager or its subsidiaries is prohibited. The general contractor/construction manager may negotiate with the low-responsive bidder in accordance with RCW 39.10.080 or, if unsuccessful in such negotiations, rebid.

       (7) The general contractor/construction manager, or its subsidiaries, may bid on subcontract work if:

       (a) The work within the subcontract bid package is customarily performed by the general contractor/construction manager;

       (b) The bid opening is managed by the public body; and

       (c) Notification of the general contractor/construction manager's intention to bid is included in the public solicitation of bids for the bid package.

       In no event may the value of subcontract work performed by the general contractor/construction manager exceed thirty percent of the negotiated maximum allowable construction cost.

       (8) A public body may include an incentive clause in any contract awarded under this section for savings of either time or cost or both from that originally negotiated. No incentives granted may exceed five percent of the maximum allowable construction cost. If the project is completed for less than the agreed upon maximum allowable construction cost, any savings not otherwise negotiated as part of an incentive clause shall accrue to the public body. If the project is completed for more than the agreed upon maximum allowable construction cost, excepting increases due to any contract change orders approved by the public body, the additional cost shall be the responsibility of the general contractor/construction manager.

       NEW SECTION. Sec. 6. A new section is added to chapter 39.10 RCW to read as follows:

       (1) In addition to the projects authorized in RCW 39.10.061, public hospital districts may also use the general contractor/construction manager contracting procedure for the construction of public hospital district capital demonstration projects, subject to the following conditions:

       (a) The project must receive approval from the public hospital district project review board established under section 7 of this act.

       (b) The public hospital district project review board may not authorize more than ten demonstration projects valued between five and ten million dollars.

       (2) Public hospital districts may also use the general contractor/construction manager contracting procedure for the construction of any public hospital district capital project that has a value over ten million dollars and that has received approval from the public hospital district project review board established under section 7 of this act.

       NEW SECTION. Sec. 7. A new section is added to chapter 39.10 RCW to read as follows:

       (1) The public hospital district project review board is established to review public hospital district proposals submitted by public hospital districts to use alternative public works contracting procedures. The board shall select and approve qualified projects based upon an evaluation of the information submitted by the public hospital district under subsection (2) of this section. Any appointments for full terms or to fill a vacancy shall be made by the governor and shall include the following representatives, each having experience with public works or commercial construction: One representative from the department of health; one representative from the office of financial management; two representatives from the construction industry, one of whom works for a construction company with gross annual revenues of twenty million dollars or less; one representative from the specialty contracting industry; one representative from organized labor; one representative from the design industry; one representative from a public body previously authorized under this chapter to use an alternative public works contracting procedure who has experience using such alternative contracting procedures; one representative from public hospital districts with total revenues greater than fifteen million dollars per year; and one representative from public hospital districts with total revenues equal to or less than fifteen million dollars per year. Each member shall be appointed for a term of three years, with the first three-year term commencing after July 27, 2003. Any member of the public hospital district project review board who is directly affiliated with any applicant before the board must recuse him or herself from consideration of the application.

       (2) A public hospital district seeking to use alternative contracting procedures authorized under this chapter pursuant to section 6 of this act shall file an application with the public hospital district project review board. The application form shall require the district to submit a detailed statement of the proposed project, including the public hospital district's name; the current projected total budget for the project, including the estimated construction costs, costs for professional services, equipment and furnishing costs, off-site costs, contract administration costs, and other related project costs; the anticipated project design and construction schedule; a summary of the public hospital district's construction activity for the preceding six years; and an explanation of why the public hospital district believes the use of an alternative contracting procedure is in the public interest and why the public hospital district is qualified to use an alternative contracting procedure, including a summary of the relevant experience of the public hospital district's management team. The applicant shall also provide in a timely manner any other information concerning implementation of projects under this chapter requested by the public hospital district project review board to assist in its consideration.

       (3) Any public hospital district whose application is approved by the public hospital district project review board shall comply with the public notification and review requirements in RCW 39.10.030.

       (4) Any public hospital district whose application is approved by the public hospital district project review board shall not use as an evaluation factor whether a contractor submitting a bid for the approved project has had prior general contractor/construction manager procedure experience.

MESSAGE FROM THE HOUSE

 

April 24, 2003

 

MR. PRESIDENT:

      The House has passed ENGROSSED SUBSTITUTE SENATE BILL No. 5903 with the following amendment(s):

       Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:

       "NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. A new section is added to chapter 72.05 RCW to read as follows:

       (1) It is the intent of the legislature that appropriate treatment services be provided to juvenile offenders in order to achieve rehabilitation. The treatment should be provided at either local detention facilities or at state institutions depending upon which facility best meets the needs of the individual juvenile offender. The legislature recognizes that a consequence of the treatment alternatives established under this act is a reduction in the juvenile rehabilitation administration's institutional population. As a result of a decrease in institutional population it may become necessary to consolidate institutional facilities or services.

       (2) No juvenile rehabilitation administration institution shall be closed without specific authorization in an act of the legislature.

       (3) If a juvenile rehabilitation administration institution is closed by the legislature, the department of corrections shall be prohibited from operating the institution and the institution shall not be used to incarcerate adult offenders.

       Sec. 2. RCW 13.40.0357 and 2002 c 324 s 3 and 2002 c 175 s 20 are each reenacted and amended to read as follows:

PRIOR ADJUDICATIONS

 

NOTE: References in the grid to days or weeks mean periods of confinement.

     (1) The vertical axis of the grid is the current offense category. The current offense category is determined by the offense of adjudication.

     (2) The horizontal axis of the grid is the number of prior adjudications included in the juvenile's criminal history. Each prior felony adjudication shall count as one point. Each prior violation, misdemeanor, and gross misdemeanor adjudication shall count as 1/4 point. Fractional points shall be rounded down.

     (3) The standard range disposition for each offense is determined by the intersection of the column defined by the prior adjudications and the row defined by the current offense category.

     (4) RCW 13.40.180 applies if the offender is being sentenced for more than one offense.

     (5) A current offense that is a violation is equivalent to an offense category of E. However, a disposition for a violation shall not include confinement.

 

                                                                                                                           OR

 

                                                                                                                    OPTION B                                                                                                                              SUSPENDED DISPOSITION ALTERNATIVE

 

     (1) If the offender is subject to a standard range disposition involving confinement by the department, the court may impose the standard range and suspend the disposition on condition that the offender comply with one or more local sanctions and any educational or treatment requirement. The treatment programs provided to the offender must be research-based best practice programs as identified by the Washington state institute for public policy or the joint legislative audit and review committee.

     (2) If the offender fails to comply with the suspended disposition, the court may impose sanctions pursuant to RCW 13.40.200 or may revoke the suspended disposition and order the disposition's execution.

     (3) An offender is ineligible for the suspended disposition option under this section if the offender is:

     (a) Adjudicated of an A+ offense;

     (b) Fourteen years of age or older and is adjudicated of one or more of the following offenses:

     (i) A class A offense, or an attempt, conspiracy, or solicitation to commit a class A offense;

     (ii) Manslaughter in the first degree (RCW 9A.32.060); or

     (iii) Assault in the second degree (RCW 9A.36.021), extortion in the first degree (RCW 9A.56.120), kidnapping in the second degree (RCW 9A.40.030), robbery in the second degree (RCW 9A.56.210), residential burglary (RCW 9A.52.025), burglary in the second degree (RCW 9A.52.030), drive-by shooting (RCW 9A.36.045), vehicular homicide (RCW 46.61.520), hit and run death (RCW 46.52.020(4)(a)), intimidating a witness (RCW 9A.72.110), violation of the uniform controlled substances act (RCW 69.50.401(a)(1) (i) or (ii)), or manslaughter 2 (RCW 9A.32.070), when the offense includes infliction of bodily harm upon another or when during the commission or immediate withdrawal from the offense the respondent was armed with a deadly weapon;

     (c) Ordered to serve a disposition for a firearm violation under RCW 13.40.193; or

     (d) Adjudicated of a sex offense as defined in RCW 9.94A.030.

 

                                                                                                                           OR

 

                                                                                                                    OPTION C                                                                                                                              CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY DISPOSITION ALTERNATIVE

 

     If the juvenile offender is subject to a standard range disposition of local sanctions or 15 to 36 weeks of confinement and has not committed an A- or B + offense, the court may impose a disposition under RCW 13.40.160(4) and 13.40.165.

 

                                                                                                                           OR

 

                                                                                                               OPTION ((C)) D                                                                                                                              MANIFEST INJUSTICE

 

If the court determines that a disposition under option A ((or)), B, or C would effectuate a manifest injustice, the court shall impose a disposition outside the standard range under RCW 13.40.160(2).

 

     Sec. 3. RCW 13.40.160 and 2002 c 175 s 22 are each amended to read as follows:

     (1) The standard range disposition for a juvenile adjudicated of an offense is determined according to RCW 13.40.0357.

     (a) When the court sentences an offender to a local sanction as provided in RCW 13.40.0357 option A, the court shall impose a determinate disposition within the standard ranges, except as provided in subsections (2), (3), ((and)) (4), or (5) of this section. The disposition may be comprised of one or more local sanctions.

     (b) When the court sentences an offender to a standard range as provided in RCW 13.40.0357 option A that includes a term of confinement exceeding thirty days, commitment shall be to the department for the standard range of confinement, except as provided in subsections (2), (3), ((and)) (4), and (5) of this section.

     (2) If the court concludes, and enters reasons for its conclusion, that disposition within the standard range would effectuate a manifest injustice the court shall impose a disposition outside the standard range, as indicated in option ((C)) D of RCW 13.40.0357. The court's finding of manifest injustice shall be supported by clear and convincing evidence.

     A disposition outside the standard range shall be determinate and shall be comprised of confinement or community supervision, or a combination thereof. When a judge finds a manifest injustice and imposes a sentence of confinement exceeding thirty days, the court shall sentence the juvenile to a maximum term, and the provisions of RCW 13.40.030(2) shall be used to determine the range. A disposition outside the standard range is appealable under RCW 13.40.230 by the state or the respondent. A disposition within the standard range is not appealable under RCW 13.40.230.

     (3) When a juvenile offender is found to have committed a sex offense, other than a sex offense that is also a serious violent offense as defined by RCW 9.94A.030, and has no history of a prior sex offense, the court, on its own motion or the motion of the state or the respondent, may order an examination to determine whether the respondent is amenable to treatment.

     The report of the examination shall include at a minimum the following: The respondent's version of the facts and the official version of the facts, the respondent's offense history, an assessment of problems in addition to alleged deviant behaviors, the respondent's social, educational, and employment situation, and other evaluation measures used. The report shall set forth the sources of the evaluator's information.

     The examiner shall assess and report regarding the respondent's amenability to treatment and relative risk to the community. A proposed treatment plan shall be provided and shall include, at a minimum:

     (a)(i) Frequency and type of contact between the offender and therapist;

     (ii) Specific issues to be addressed in the treatment and description of planned treatment modalities;

     (iii) Monitoring plans, including any requirements regarding living conditions, lifestyle requirements, and monitoring by family members, legal guardians, or others;

     (iv) Anticipated length of treatment; and

     (v) Recommended crime-related prohibitions.

     The court on its own motion may order, or on a motion by the state shall order, a second examination regarding the offender's amenability to treatment. The evaluator shall be selected by the party making the motion. The defendant shall pay the cost of any second examination ordered unless the court finds the defendant to be indigent in which case the state shall pay the cost.

     After receipt of reports of the examination, the court shall then consider whether the offender and the community will benefit from use of this special sex offender disposition alternative and consider the victim's opinion whether the offender should receive a treatment disposition under this section. If the court determines that this special sex offender disposition alternative is appropriate, then the court shall impose a determinate disposition within the standard range for the offense, or if the court concludes, and enters reasons for its conclusions, that such disposition would cause a manifest injustice, the court shall impose a disposition under option ((C)) D, and the court may suspend the execution of the disposition and place the offender on community supervision for at least two years. As a condition of the suspended disposition, the court may impose the conditions of community supervision and other conditions, including up to thirty days of confinement and requirements that the offender do any one or more of the following:

     (b)(i) Devote time to a specific education, employment, or occupation;

     (ii) Undergo available outpatient sex offender treatment for up to two years, or inpatient sex offender treatment not to exceed the standard range of confinement for that offense. A community mental health center may not be used for such treatment unless it has an appropriate program designed for sex offender treatment. The respondent shall not change sex offender treatment providers or treatment conditions without first notifying the prosecutor, the probation counselor, and the court, and shall not change providers without court approval after a hearing if the prosecutor or probation counselor object to the change;

     (iii) Remain within prescribed geographical boundaries and notify the court or the probation counselor prior to any change in the offender's address, educational program, or employment;

     (iv) Report to the prosecutor and the probation counselor prior to any change in a sex offender treatment provider. This change shall have prior approval by the court;

     (v) Report as directed to the court and a probation counselor;

     (vi) Pay all court-ordered legal financial obligations, perform community restitution, or any combination thereof;

     (vii) Make restitution to the victim for the cost of any counseling reasonably related to the offense;

     (viii) Comply with the conditions of any court-ordered probation bond; or

     (ix) The court shall order that the offender may not attend the public or approved private elementary, middle, or high school attended by the victim or the victim's siblings. The parents or legal guardians of the offender are responsible for transportation or other costs associated with the offender's change of school that would otherwise be paid by the school district. The court shall send notice of the disposition and restriction on attending the same school as the victim or victim's siblings to the public or approved private school the juvenile will attend, if known, or if unknown, to the approved private schools and the public school district board of directors of the district in which the juvenile resides or intends to reside. This notice must be sent at the earliest possible date but not later than ten calendar days after entry of the disposition.

     The sex offender treatment provider shall submit quarterly reports on the respondent's progress in treatment to the court and the parties. The reports shall reference the treatment plan and include at a minimum the following: Dates of attendance, respondent's compliance with requirements, treatment activities, the respondent's relative progress in treatment, and any other material specified by the court at the time of the disposition.

     At the time of the disposition, the court may set treatment review hearings as the court considers appropriate.

     Except as provided in this subsection (3), after July 1, 1991, examinations and treatment ordered pursuant to this subsection shall only be conducted by sex offender treatment providers certified by the department of health pursuant to chapter 18.155 RCW. A sex offender therapist who examines or treats a juvenile sex offender pursuant to this subsection does not have to be certified by the department of health pursuant to chapter 18.155 RCW if the court finds that: (A) The offender has already moved to another state or plans to move to another state for reasons other than circumventing the certification requirements; (B) no certified providers are available for treatment within a reasonable geographical distance of the offender's home; and (C) the evaluation and treatment plan comply with this subsection (3) and the rules adopted by the department of health.

     If the offender violates any condition of the disposition or the court finds that the respondent is failing to make satisfactory progress in treatment, the court may revoke the suspension and order execution of the disposition or the court may impose a penalty of up to thirty days' confinement for violating conditions of the disposition. The court may order both execution of the disposition and up to thirty days' confinement for the violation of the conditions of the disposition. The court shall give credit for any confinement time previously served if that confinement was for the offense for which the suspension is being revoked.

     For purposes of this section, "victim" means any person who has sustained emotional, psychological, physical, or financial injury to person or property as a direct result of the crime charged. "Victim" may also include a known parent or guardian of a victim who is a minor child unless the parent or guardian is the perpetrator of the offense.

     A disposition entered under this subsection (3) is not appealable under RCW 13.40.230.

     (4) If the juvenile offender is subject to a standard range disposition of local sanctions or 15 to 36 weeks of confinement and has not committed an A- or B+ offense, the court may impose the disposition alternative under RCW 13.40.165.

     (5) If a juvenile is subject to a commitment of 15 to 65 weeks of confinement, the court may impose the disposition alternative under section 4 of this act.

     (6) RCW 13.40.193 shall govern the disposition of any juvenile adjudicated of possessing a firearm in violation of RCW 9.41.040(1)(b)(iii) or any crime in which a special finding is entered that the juvenile was armed with a firearm.

     (((6))) (7) Whenever a juvenile offender is entitled to credit for time spent in detention prior to a dispositional order, the dispositional order shall specifically state the number of days of credit for time served.

     (((7))) (8) Except as provided under subsection (3) ((or)), (4), or (5) of this section, or option B of RCW 13.40.0357, or RCW 13.40.127, the court shall not suspend or defer the imposition or the execution of the disposition.

     (((8))) (9) In no case shall the term of confinement imposed by the court at disposition exceed that to which an adult could be subjected for the same offense.

     NEW SECTION. Sec. 4. A new section is added to chapter 13.40 RCW to read as follows:

     (1) When an offender is subject to a standard range commitment of 15 to 65 weeks, the court may:

     (a) Impose the standard range; or

     (b) Suspend the standard range disposition on condition that the offender complies with the terms of this mental health disposition alternative.

     (2) The court may impose this disposition alternative when the court finds the following:

     (a) The offender has a current diagnosis, consistent with the American psychiatry association diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders, of axis I psychiatric disorder, excluding youth that are diagnosed as solely having a conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, substance abuse disorder, paraphilia, or pedophilia;

     (b) An appropriate treatment option is available in the local community;

     (c) The plan for the offender identifies and addresses requirements for successful participation and completion of the treatment intervention program including: Incentives and graduated sanctions designed specifically for amenable youth, including the use of detention, detoxication, and in-patient or outpatient substance abuse treatment and psychiatric hospitalization, and structured community support consisting of mental health providers, probation, educational and vocational advocates, child welfare services, and family and community support. For any mental health treatment ordered for an offender under this section, the treatment option selected shall be chosen from among programs which have been successful in addressing mental health needs of juveniles and successful in mental health treatment of juveniles and identified as research-based best practice programs. A list of programs which meet these criteria shall be agreed upon by: The Washington association of juvenile court administrators, the juvenile rehabilitation administration of the department of social and health services, a representative of the division of public behavioral health and justice policy at the University of Washington, and the Washington institute for public policy. The list of programs shall be created not later than July 1, 2003. The group shall provide the list to all superior courts, its own membership, the legislature, and the governor. The group shall meet annually and revise the list as appropriate; and

     (d) The offender, offender's family, and community will benefit from use of the mental health disposition alternative.

     (3) The court on its own motion may order, or on motion by either party, shall order a comprehensive mental health evaluation to determine if the offender has a designated mental disorder. The court may also order a chemical dependency evaluation to determine if the offender also has a co-occurring chemical dependency disorder. The evaluation shall include at a minimum the following: The offender's version of the facts and the official version of the facts, the offender's offense, an assessment of the offender's mental health and drug-alcohol problems and previous treatment attempts, and the offender's social, criminal, educational, and employment history and living situation.

     (4) The evaluator shall determine if the offender is amenable to research-based treatment. A proposed case management and treatment plan shall include at a minimum:

     (a) The availability of treatment;

     (b) Anticipated length of treatment;

     (c) Whether one or more treatment interventions are proposed and the anticipated sequence of those treatment interventions;

     (d) The education plan;

     (e) The residential plan; and

     (f) The monitoring plan.

     (5) The court on its own motion may order, or on motion by either party, shall order a second mental health or chemical dependency evaluation. The party making the motion shall select the evaluator. The requesting party shall pay the cost of any examination ordered under this subsection and subsection (3) of this section unless the court finds the offender is indigent and no third party insurance coverage is available, in which case the state shall pay the cost.

     (6) Upon receipt of the assessments, evaluations, and reports the court shall consider whether the offender and the community will benefit from use of the mental health disposition alternative. The court shall consider the victim's opinion whether the offender should receive the option.

     (7) If the court determines that the mental health disposition alternative is appropriate, the court shall impose a standard range disposition of not more than 65 weeks, suspend execution of the disposition, and place the offender on community supervision up to one year and impose one or more other local sanctions. Confinement in a secure county detention facility, other than county group homes, inpatient psychiatric treatment facilities, and substance abuse programs, shall be limited to thirty days. As a condition of a suspended disposition, the court shall require the offender to participate in the recommended treatment interventions.

     (8) The treatment providers shall submit monthly reports to the court and parties on the offender's progress in treatment. The report shall reference the treatment plan and include at a minimum the following: Dates of attendance, offender's compliance with requirements, treatment activities, medication management, the offender's relative progress in treatment, and any other material specified by the court at the time of the disposition.

     (9) If the offender fails to comply with the suspended disposition, the court may impose sanctions pursuant to RCW 13.40.200 or may revoke the suspended disposition and order the disposition's execution.

     (10) An offender is ineligible for the mental health disposition option under this section if the offender is adjudicated of a sex or violent offense as defined in RCW 9.94A.030.

     Sec. 5. RCW 13.40.165 and 2002 c 175 s 23 and 2002 c 42 s 1 are each reenacted and amended to read as follows:

     (1) The purpose of this disposition alternative is to ensure that successful treatment options to reduce recidivism are available to eligible youth, pursuant to RCW 70.96A.520. The court must consider eligibility for the chemical dependency disposition alternative when a juvenile offender is subject to a standard range disposition of local sanctions or 15 to 36 weeks of confinement and has not committed an A- or B+ offense, other than a first time B+ offense under chapter 69.50 RCW. The court, on its own motion or the motion of the state or the respondent if the evidence shows that the offender may be chemically dependent or substance abusing, may order an examination by a chemical dependency counselor from a chemical dependency treatment facility approved under chapter 70.96A RCW to determine if the youth is chemically dependent or substance abusing. The offender shall pay the cost of any examination ordered under this subsection unless the court finds that the offender is indigent and no third party insurance coverage is available, in which case the state shall pay the cost.

     (2) The report of the examination shall include at a minimum the following: The respondent's version of the facts and the official version of the facts, the respondent's offense history, an assessment of drug-alcohol problems and previous treatment attempts, the respondent's social, educational, and employment situation, and other evaluation measures used. The report shall set forth the sources of the examiner's information.

     (3) The examiner shall assess and report regarding the respondent's relative risk to the community. A proposed treatment plan shall be provided and shall include, at a minimum:

     (a) Whether inpatient and/or outpatient treatment is recommended;

     (b) Availability of appropriate treatment;

     (c) Monitoring plans, including any requirements regarding living conditions, lifestyle requirements, and monitoring by family members, legal guardians, or others;

     (d) Anticipated length of treatment; and

     (e) Recommended crime-related prohibitions.

     (4) The court on its own motion may order, or on a motion by the state or the respondent shall order, a second examination. The evaluator shall be selected by the party making the motion. The requesting party shall pay the cost of any examination ordered under this subsection unless the requesting party is the offender and the court finds that the offender is indigent and no third party insurance coverage is available, in which case the state shall pay the cost.

     (5)(a) After receipt of reports of the examination, the court shall then consider whether the offender and the community will benefit from use of this chemical dependency disposition alternative and consider the victim's opinion whether the offender should receive a treatment disposition under this section.

     (b) If the court determines that this chemical dependency disposition alternative is appropriate, then the court shall impose the standard range for the offense, or if the court concludes, and enters reasons for its conclusion, that such disposition would effectuate a manifest injustice, the court shall impose a disposition above the standard range as indicated in option ((C)) D of RCW 13.40.0357 if the disposition is an increase from the standard range and the confinement of the offender does not exceed a maximum of fifty-two weeks, suspend execution of the disposition, and place the offender on community supervision for up to one year. As a condition of the suspended disposition, the court shall require the offender to undergo available outpatient drug/alcohol treatment and/or inpatient drug/alcohol treatment. For purposes of this section, inpatient treatment may not exceed ninety days. As a condition of the suspended disposition, the court may impose conditions of community supervision and other sanctions, including up to thirty days of confinement, one hundred fifty hours of community restitution, and payment of legal financial obligations and restitution.

     (6) The drug/alcohol treatment provider shall submit monthly reports on the respondent's progress in treatment to the court and the parties. The reports shall reference the treatment plan and include at a minimum the following: Dates of attendance, respondent's compliance with requirements, treatment activities, the respondent's relative progress in treatment, and any other material specified by the court at the time of the disposition.

     At the time of the disposition, the court may set treatment review hearings as the court considers appropriate.

     If the offender violates any condition of the disposition or the court finds that the respondent is failing to make satisfactory progress in treatment, the court may impose sanctions pursuant to RCW 13.40.200 or revoke the suspension and order execution of the disposition. The court shall give credit for any confinement time previously served if that confinement was for the offense for which the suspension is being revoked.

     (7) For purposes of this section, "victim" means any person who has sustained emotional, psychological, physical, or financial injury to person or property as a direct result of the offense charged.

     (8) Whenever a juvenile offender is entitled to credit for time spent in detention prior to a dispositional order, the dispositional order shall specifically state the number of days of credit for time served.

     (9) In no case shall the term of confinement imposed by the court at disposition exceed that to which an adult could be subjected for the same offense.

     (10) A disposition under this section is not appealable under RCW 13.40.230.

     NEW SECTION. Sec. 6. Because model adherence and competent delivery of research-based intervention programs is critical for reducing recidivism, the Washington state institute for public policy shall develop adherence and outcome standards for measuring effectiveness of treatment programs referred to in this act. The standards shall be developed and presented to the governor and legislature no later than January 1, 2004. The standards shall include methods for measuring competent delivery of interventions as well as success factors following treatment. The standards shall include, but not be limited to hiring, training and retaining qualified providers, managing and overseeing the delivery of treatment services, and developing quality assurance measures. The department shall utilize these standards to assess program effectiveness. The courts shall also utilize these standards in determining their continued use of these alternatives. The courts shall not continue to use programs that do not comply with these standards.

     NEW SECTION. Sec. 7. (1) A task force is created for the purpose of examining the coordination of information, education services, and matters of public safety when juvenile offenders are placed into public schools, following their conviction.

     (2) The task force shall be chaired by the superintendent of public instruction and include a representative from the juvenile rehabilitation administration of the department of social and health services, the state board of education, associations which represent school teachers, administrators, and school boards, superior court judges, the Washington association of juvenile court administrators, prosecuting attorneys, the governor, attorneys whose practice includes criminal defense work for juvenile defendants, three groups whose primary purpose is the delivery of services to families and children, and law enforcement. The three groups who deliver services shall be selected by the superintendent of public instruction.

     (3) The task force shall identify specific policies and statutory, administrative, and practice processes and barriers that may operate to impede: (a) The identification and delivery of appropriate and coordinated services to juvenile offenders who are placed in, or returned to public schools following conviction of an offense; and (b) transmittal of information regarding juvenile offenders who are returned to, or placed in, public schools following conviction of an offense. The task force shall recommend specific statutory and administrative changes as it finds appropriate to eliminate or reduce the barriers identified as a result of this subsection (3).

     (4) The task force shall report its findings and recommendations to the governor, the legislature, and the agencies represented on the task force not later than December 1, 2003.

     NEW SECTION. Sec. 8. Sections 6 and 7 of this act expire December 31, 2003.

MR. PRESIDENT:

    The House has passed SUBSTITUTE SENATE BILL NO. 6012 with the following amendment(s):

     Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:

     "Sec. 1. RCW 90.58.060 and 1995 c 347 s 304 are each amended to read as follows:

     (1) The department shall periodically review and adopt guidelines consistent with RCW 90.58.020, containing the elements specified in RCW 90.58.100 for:

     (a) Development of master programs for regulation of the uses of shorelines; and

     (b) Development of master programs for regulation of the uses of shorelines of statewide significance.

     (2) Before adopting or amending guidelines under this section, the department shall provide an opportunity for public review and comment as follows:

     (a) The department shall mail copies of the proposal to all cities, counties, and federally recognized Indian tribes, and to any other person who has requested a copy, and shall publish the proposed guidelines in the Washington state register. Comments shall be submitted in writing to the department within sixty days from the date the proposal has been published in the register.

     (b) The department shall hold at least four public hearings on the proposal in different locations throughout the state to provide a reasonable opportunity for residents in all parts of the state to present statements and views on the proposed guidelines. Notice of the hearings shall be published at least once in each of the three weeks immediately preceding the hearing in one or more newspapers of general circulation in each county of the state. If an amendment to the guidelines addresses an issue limited to one geographic area, the number and location of hearings may be adjusted consistent with the intent of this subsection to assure all parties a reasonable opportunity to comment on the proposed amendment. The department shall accept written comments on the proposal during the sixty-day public comment period and for seven days after the final public hearing.

     (c) At the conclusion of the public comment period, the department shall review the comments received and modify the proposal consistent with the provisions of this chapter. The proposal shall then be published for adoption pursuant to the provisions of chapter 34.05 RCW.

     (3) The department may ((propose)) adopt amendments to the guidelines not more than once each year. ((At least once every five years the department shall conduct a review of the guidelines pursuant to the procedures outlined in subsection (2) of this section)) Such amendments shall be limited to: (a) Addressing technical or procedural issues that result from the review and adoption of master programs under the guidelines; or (b) issues of guideline compliance with statutory provisions.

     Sec. 2. RCW 90.58.080 and 1995 c 347 s 305 are each amended to read as follows:

     (1) Local governments shall develop or amend((, within twenty-four months after the adoption of guidelines as provided in RCW 90.58.060,)) a master program for regulation of uses of the shorelines of the state consistent with the required elements of the guidelines adopted by the department in accordance with the schedule established by this section.

     (2)(a) Subject to the provisions of subsections (5) and (6) of this section, each local government subject to this chapter shall develop or amend its master program for the regulation of uses of shorelines within its jurisdiction according to the following schedule:

     (I) On or before December 1, 2005, for the city of Port Townsend, the city of Bellingham, the city of Everett, Snohomish county, and Whatcom county;

     (ii) On or before December 1, 2009, for King county and the cities within King county greater in population than ten thousand;

     (iii) Except as provided by (a)(I) and (ii) of this subsection, on or before December 1, 2011, for Clallam, Clark, Jefferson, King, Kitsap, Pierce, Snohomish, Thurston, and Whatcom counties and the cities within those counties;

     (iv) On or before December 1, 2012, for Cowlitz, Island, Lewis, Mason, San Juan, Skagit, and Skamania counties and the cities within those counties;

     (v) On or before December 1, 2013, for Benton, Chelan, Douglas, Grant, Kittitas, Spokane, and Yakima counties and the cities within those counties; and

     (b) Nothing in this subsection (2) shall preclude a local government from developing or amending its master program prior to the dates established by this subsection (2).

     (3)(a) Following approval by the department of a new or amended master program, local governments required to develop or amend master programs on or before December 1, 2009, as provided by subsection (2)(a)(I) and (ii) of this section, shall be deemed to have complied with the schedule established by subsection (2)(a)(iii) of this section and shall not be required to complete master program amendments until seven years after the applicable dates established by subsection (2)(a)(iii) of this section. Any jurisdiction listed in subsection (2)(a)(I) of this section that has a new or amended master program approved by the department on or after March 1, 2002, but before the effective date of this section, shall not be required to complete master program amendments until seven years after the applicable date provided by subsection (2)(a)(iii) of this section.

     (b) Following approval by the department of a new or amended master program, local governments choosing to develop or amend master programs on or before December 1, 2009, shall be deemed to have complied with the schedule established by subsection (2)(a)(iii) through (vi) of this section and shall not be required to complete master program amendments until seven years after the applicable dates established by subsection (2)(a)(iii) through (vi) of this section.

     (4) Local governments shall conduct a review of their master programs at least once every seven years after the applicable dates established by subsection (2)(a)(iii) through (vi) of this section. Following the review required by this subsection (4), local governments shall, if necessary, revise their master programs. The purpose of the review is:

     (a) To assure that the master program complies with applicable law and guidelines in effect at the time of the review; and

     (b) To assure consistency of the master program with the local government's comprehensive plan and development regulations adopted under chapter 36.70A RCW, if applicable, and other local requirements.

     (5) Local governments are encouraged to begin the process of developing or amending their master programs early and are eligible for grants from the department as provided by RCW 90.58.250, subject to available funding. Except for those local governments listed in subsection (2)(a)(I) and (ii) of this section, the deadline for completion of the new or amended master programs shall be two years after the date the grant is approved by the department. Subsequent master program review dates shall not be altered by the provisions of this subsection.

     (6)(a) Grants to local governments for developing and amending master programs pursuant to the schedule established by this section shall be provided at least two years before the adoption dates specified in subsection (2) of this section. To the extent possible, the department shall allocate grants within the amount appropriated for such purposes to provide reasonable and adequate funding to local governments that have indicated their intent to develop or amend master programs during the biennium according to the schedule established by subsection (2) of this section. Any local government that applies for but does not receive funding to comply with the provisions of subsection (2) of this section may delay the development or amendment of its master program until the following biennium.

     (b) Local governments with delayed compliance dates as provided in (a) of this subsection shall be the first priority for funding in subsequent biennia, and the development or amendment compliance deadline for those local governments shall be two years after the date of grant approval.

     (c) Failure of the local government to apply in a timely manner for a master program development or amendment grant in accordance with the requirements of the department shall not be considered a delay resulting from the provisions of (a) of this subsection.

     (7) Notwithstanding the provisions of this section, all local governments subject to the requirements of this chapter that have not developed or amended master programs on or after March 1, 2002, shall, no later than December 1, 2014, develop or amend their master programs to comply with guidelines adopted by the department after January 1, 2003.

     Sec. 3. RCW 90.58.250 and 1971 ex.s. c 286 s 25 are each amended to read as follows:

     (1) The legislature intends to eliminate the limits on state funding of shoreline master program development and amendment costs. The legislature further intends that the state will provide funding to local governments that is reasonable and adequate to accomplish the costs of developing and amending shoreline master programs consistent with the schedule established by RCW 90.58.080. Except as specifically described herein, nothing in this act is intended to alter the existing obligation, duties, and benefits provided by this act to local governments and the department.

     (2) The department is directed to cooperate fully with local governments in discharging their responsibilities under this chapter. Funds shall be available for distribution to local governments on the basis of applications for preparation of master programs and the provisions of RCW 90.58.080(7). Such applications shall be submitted in accordance with regulations developed by the department. The department is authorized to make and administer grants within appropriations authorized by the legislature to any local government within the state for the purpose of developing a master shorelines program.

     ((No grant shall be made in an amount in excess of the recipient's contribution to the estimated cost of such program.))"

     Correct the title., and the same are herewith transmitted.

MOTION

 

    Senator Mulliken moved that the Senate refuse to concur in the House amendment to Substitute Senate Bill No. 6012 and asks the House to recede therefrom.

 

PARLIAMENTARY INQUIRY

 

    Senator Kline: “A parliamentary inquiry, Mr. President. Under Rule 254 of Reed’s Rules, as I understand it, our ‘no’ motion, or rather our ‘no’ vote, if it is, in fact, a ‘no’ vote on a motion to not concur is in it’s procedural effect a vote to concur. Please confirm or tell me that I am wrong, Mr. President.”

 

REPLY BY THE PRESIDENT

 

    President Owen: “Senator Kline, your point is well taken.”

    Senator Kline: “Then, a ‘no’ vote on a motion to not concur is, in effect, a motion to concur. I strongly urge that we vote ‘no’ very clearly. Thank you, Mr. President.”

    Further debate ensued.

    The President declared the question before the Senate to be the motion by Senator Mulliken to not concur in the Senate amendment to Substitute Senate Bill No. 6012 and asks the House to recede therefrom.

    The motion by Senator Mulliken to not concur in the House amendment failed.

    The President declared that, in effect, the Senate has concurred in the House amendment to Substitute Senate Bill No. 6012.

 

    The President declared the question before the Senate to be the roll call on the final passage of Substitute Senate Bill No. 6012, as amended by the House.

 

ROLL CALL

 

    The Secretary called the roll on the final passage of Substitute Senate Bill No. 6012, as amended by the House, and the bill passed the Senate by the following vote: Yeas, 44; Nays, 5; Absent, 0; Excused, 0.

     Voting yea: Senators Benton, Brandland, Brown, Carlson, Deccio, Doumit, Eide, Esser, Fairley, Finkbeiner, Franklin, Fraser, Hale, Hargrove, Haugen, Hewitt, Horn, Jacobsen, Johnson, Kastama, Keiser, Kline, Kohl-Welles, McAuliffe, McCaslin, Oke, Parlette, Poulsen, Prentice, Rasmussen, Reardon, Regala, Roach, Rossi, Schmidt, Sheahan, Sheldon, B., Sheldon, T., Shin, Spanel, Swecker, Thibaudeau, Winsley and Zarelli - 44.

MESSAGE FROM THE HOUSE

 

April 24, 2003

 

MR. PRESIDENT:

    Under suspension of the rules, the House has passed ENGROSSED SENATE BILL NO. 5389 with the following amendment(s):

     Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:

     "NEW SECTION. Sec. 4. A new section is added to chapter 59.18 RCW to read as follows:

     (1) For the purpose of this section, "drug and alcohol free housing" requires a rental agreement and means a dwelling in which:

     (a) Each of the dwelling units on the premises is occupied or held for occupancy by at least one tenant who is a recovering alcoholic or drug addict and is participating in a program of recovery;

     (b) The landlord is a nonprofit corporation incorporated under Title 24 RCW, a corporation for profit incorporated under Title 23B RCW, or a housing authority created under chapter 35.82 RCW, and is providing federally assisted housing as defined in chapter 59.28 RCW;

     (c) The landlord provides:

     (I) A drug and alcohol free environment, covering all tenants, employees, staff, agents of the landlord, and guests;

     (ii) An employee who monitors the tenants for compliance with the requirements of (d) of this subsection;

     (iii) Individual and group support for recovery; and

     (iv) Access to a specified program of recovery; and

     (d) The rental agreement is in writing and includes the following provisions:

     (I) The tenant may not use, possess, or share alcohol, illegal drugs, controlled substances, or prescription drugs without a medical prescription, either on or off the premises;

     (ii) The tenant may not allow the tenant's guests to use, possess, or share alcohol, illegal drugs, controlled substances, or prescription drugs without a medical prescription, on the premises;

     (iii) The tenant must participate in a program of recovery, which specific program is described in the rental agreement;

     (iv) On at least a quarterly basis the tenant must provide written verification from the tenant's program of recovery that the tenant is participating in the program of recovery and the tenant has not used alcohol or illegal drugs;

     (v) The landlord has the right to require the tenant to take a urine analysis test regarding drug or alcohol usage, at the landlord's discretion and expense; and

     (vi) The landlord has the right to terminate the tenant's tenancy by delivering a three-day notice to terminate with one day to comply, if a tenant living in drug and alcohol free housing uses, possesses, or shares alcohol, illegal drugs, controlled substances, or prescription drugs without a medical prescription.

     (2) For the purpose of this section, "program of recovery" means a verifiable program of counseling and rehabilitation treatment services, including a written plan, to assist recovering alcoholics or drug addicts to recover from their addiction to alcohol or illegal drugs while living in drug and alcohol free housing. A "program of recovery" includes Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and similar programs.

     (3) If a tenant living for less than two years in drug and alcohol free housing uses, possesses, or shares alcohol, illegal drugs, controlled substances, or prescription drugs without a medical prescription, the landlord may deliver a written notice to the tenant terminating the tenancy for cause as provided in this subsection. The notice must specify the acts constituting the drug or alcohol violation and must state that the rental agreement terminates in not less than three days after delivery of the notice, at a specified date and time. The notice must also state that the tenant can cure the drug or alcohol violation by a change in conduct or otherwise within one day after delivery of the notice. If the tenant cures the violation within the one-day period, the rental agreement does not terminate. If the tenant does not cure the violation within the one-day period, the rental agreement terminates as provided in the notice. If substantially the same act that constituted a prior drug or alcohol violation of which notice was given reoccurs within six months, the landlord may terminate the rental agreement upon at least three days' written notice specifying the violation and the date and time of termination of the rental agreement. The tenant does not have a right to cure this subsequent violation.

     (4) Notwithstanding subsections (1), (2), and (3) of this section, federally assisted housing that is occupied on other than a transient basis by persons who are required to abstain from possession or use of alcohol or drugs as a condition of occupancy and who pay for the use of the housing on a periodic basis, without regard to whether the payment is characterized as rent, program fees, or other fees, costs, or charges, are covered by this chapter unless the living arrangement is exempt under RCW 59.18.040.", and the same are herewith transmitted.

     The appropriations in this section are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

     (1) The commission may oversee up to four pilot projects implementing the use of traffic safety cameras to detect failure to stop at railroad crossings, stoplights, and school zones.

     (a) In order to ensure adequate time in the 2003-05 biennium to evaluate the effectiveness of the pilot program, any projects authorized by the commission must be authorized by December 31, 2003.

     (b) If a county or city has established an authorized automated traffic safety camera program under this section, the compensation paid to the manufacturer or vendor of the equipment used must be based only upon the value of the equipment and services provided or rendered in support of the system, and may not be based upon a portion of the fine or civil penalty imposed or the revenue generated by the equipment.

     (c) The traffic safety commission shall use the following guidelines to administer the program:

     (I) Traffic safety cameras may take pictures of the vehicle and vehicle license plate only, and only while an infraction is occurring;

     (ii) The law enforcement agency of the city or county government shall plainly mark the locations where the automated traffic enforcement system is used by placing signs on street locations that clearly indicate to a driver that he or she is entering a zone where traffic laws are enforced by an automated traffic enforcement system;

     (iii) Cities and counties using traffic safety cameras must provide periodic notice by mail to its citizens indicating the zones in which the traffic safety cameras will be used;

     (iv) Notices of infractions must be mailed to the registered owner of a vehicle within fourteen days of the infraction occurring;

     (v) The owner of the vehicle is not responsible for the violation if the owner of the vehicle, within fourteen days of receiving notification of the violation, mails to the issuing law enforcement agency, a declaration under penalty of perjury, stating that the vehicle involved was, at the time, stolen or in the care, custody, or control of some person other than the registered owner, or any other extenuating circumstances;

     (vi) Infractions detected through the use of traffic safety cameras are not part of the registered owner's driving record under RCW 46.52.101 and 46.52.120;

     (vii) If a notice of infraction is sent to the registered owner and the registered owner is a rental car business, the infraction will be dismissed against the business if it mails to the issuing agency, within fourteen days of receiving the notice, a declaration under penalty of perjury of the name and known mailing address of the individual driving or renting the vehicle when the infraction occurred. If the business is unable to determine who was driving or renting the vehicle at the time the infraction occurred, the business must sign a declaration under penalty of perjury to this effect. The declaration must be mailed to the issuing agency within fourteen days of receiving the notice of traffic infraction. Timely mailing of this declaration to the issuing agency relieves a rental car business of any liability under this section for the notice of infraction. A declaration form suitable for this purpose must be included with each automated traffic infraction notice issued, along with instructions for its completion and use;

     (viii) For purposes of the 2003-05 biennium pilot projects, infractions generated by the use of traffic safety cameras are exempt from the provisions of RCW 3.46.120, 3.50.100, and 35.20.220, and must be processed in the same manner as parking violations; and

     (ix) By June 30, 2005, the traffic safety commission shall provide a report to the legislature regarding the use, public acceptance, outcomes, and other relevant issues regarding traffic safety cameras demonstrated by the pilot projects.

     (2) $210,000 of the highway safety account--state appropriation is provided solely for continuing the five existing DUI/traffic safety task forces that receive federal project funding that expires during the 2003-05 biennium. However, the appropriation in this subsection may only be expended for a task force when the federal funding for that task force has expired.

     (3)(a) $1,555,000 of the school zone safety account--state appropriation is provided solely as matching funds for the following school safety enhancement projects, as proposed by local agencies, schools, and tribal governments in response to the department of transportation's highways and local programs request for information for potential projects to be financed under Referendum No. 51:

     The appropriations in this section are provided for improving the Washington state ferry system, including, but not limited to, vessel acquisition, vessel construction, major and minor vessel improvements, and terminal construction and improvements. The appropriations in this section are subject to the following conditions and limitations and specified amounts are provided solely for that activity:

     (1) The motor vehicle account--state appropriation includes $50,000,000 in proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by RCW 47.10.843 for vessel and terminal acquisition, major and minor improvements, and long lead time materials acquisition for the Washington state ferries. The transportation commission may authorize the use of current revenues available to the motor vehicle account in lieu of bond proceeds for any part of the state appropriation.

     (2) Appropriations in this section include funding for the purchase or lease-purchase of one passenger ferry and assume the proceeds of the sale of the MV Kalama and MV Skagit passenger ferries shall be deposited in the passenger ferry account.

     (3) The department shall provide staff support to a legislative oversight committee that will manage a study of the Eagle Harbor maintenance facility. The legislative oversight committee shall consist of two members from each caucus in each house of the legislature, appointed by the leadership of the members' respective caucus. The department shall issue a request for proposals on behalf of the legislative oversight committee for an outside consulting firm to conduct a study on the preservation, replacement, or supplementation of the Eagle Harbor maintenance facility. The study must analyze: (a) The costs and benefits to preserve and maintain or relocate the facility; (b) the impact of Eagle Harbor employment on the local community and Kitsap county; and (c) a recommendation on future investment in the Eagle Harbor maintenance facility or possible alternatives. The contractor and the legislative oversight committee must report back to the legislature's transportation committees no later than December 10, 2002.

     The appropriation in this section is subject to the following conditions and limitations and specified amounts are provided solely for that activity:

     (1) The appropriation is based on the budgeted expenditure of (($35,159,000)) $35,797,000 for vessel operating fuel in the 2001-2003 biennium. If the actual cost of fuel is less than this budgeted amount, the excess amount may not be expended. If the actual cost exceeds this amount, the department shall request a supplemental appropriation.

     (2) The appropriation provides for the compensation of ferry employees. The expenditures for compensation paid to ferry employees during the 2001-2003 biennium may not exceed $207,065,000 plus a dollar amount, as prescribed by the office of financial management, that is equal to any insurance benefit increase granted general government employees in excess of $432.82 a month annualized per eligible marine employee multiplied by the number of eligible marine employees for the respective fiscal year, a dollar amount as prescribed by the office of financial management for costs associated with pension amortization charges, and a dollar amount prescribed by the office of financial management for salary increases during the 2001-2003 biennium. For the purposes of this section, the expenditures for compensation paid to ferry employees shall be limited to salaries and wages and employee benefits as defined in the office of financial management's policies, regulations, and procedures named under objects of expenditure "A" and "B" (7.2.6.2).

     The prescribed salary and insurance benefit increase or decrease dollar amount that shall be allocated from the governor's compensation appropriations is in addition to the appropriation contained in this section and may be used to increase or decrease compensation costs, effective July 1, 2001, and thereafter, as established in the 2001-2003 general fund operating budget.

     (3) The department shall issue a request for information from entities interested in purchasing advertising on board Washington state ferry vessels. The department shall evaluate the proposals and report back to the legislature's transportation committees in January 2002 regarding the potential for revenue from different types of advertising.

     (4) The department may enter into contracts with private vendors to sell ferry tickets and medium at locations other than Washington state ferry terminals or facilities.

     (a) The department may enter into the contracts only (I) with private vendors that are already established businesses offering goods for sale to the general public; and (ii) if it determines that the vendor's established location has the potential to serve a significant percentage of the customers using a particular ferry route.

     (b) The department may adopt necessary rules and procedures to allow the use of credit and debit cards to purchase ferry tickets or medium from a private vendor who has contracted with the department to sell ferry tickets or medium. The department may establish a convenience fee to be paid by all persons purchasing ferry tickets and medium at locations other than Washington state ferry terminals or facilities. The convenience fee must be sufficient to offset the charges imposed on the department by the credit and debit card companies. In no event may the use of credit or debit cards authorized by this section create a loss of revenue to the state. The use of a personal credit card does not rely upon the credit of the state as prohibited by Article VIII, section 5 of the state Constitution.

     (5) The legislature recognizes the value of a regional fare collection system to promote intermodal travel throughout Washington state ferries' Puget Sound service area and therefore encourages the department to resume participation in the regional fare coordination project (smart card). The department shall develop a request for funding of the on-going operating costs associated with the regional fare coordination project and shall present this request to the 2003 legislature. The request for funding shall be sufficient to support a system that prevents the disclosure of personally identifying information of persons who use a smart card to facilitate payment of ferry fares. The requested system may facilitate the disclosure of aggregate information on fare collection to governmental agencies or groups concerned with public transportation or public safety as long as the data does not contain any personally identifying information. The requested system shall not prevent the release of personally identifying information to law enforcement agencies when required by a subpoena.
